Firefighters spend hour freeing YouTube prankster who cemented head in microwave

A man with his head stuck inside a microwave

West Midlands Fire Service has hit out at a Youtube star after five firefighters were called to free him from a microwave into which he had willingly cemented his head.

This risky combination is what fire crews were greeted with when a prank went drastically wrong in Wolverhampton this week.

West Midlands Fire Service explained that five firefighters worked for almost an hour to get the man unstuck.

Apparently the reason for this was that the microwave could then become a mould for the man's head, but this failed when he got stuck inside.

The microwave wasn't plugged in and was meant to be just as a mold, but the mixture set faster than expected, and Swingler struggled breathe through the plastic tube his friends had fed to him.

Despite that fact that no one has laughed at an internet prank video since 2011, YouTubers continue to push the limits in the hunt for hot comedy content, such as this goober, who cemented his fucking head into a microwave.

Senate moves closer to vote on sweeping tax-reform bill
But his vote probably won't matter: Even without Corker, Republicans appear to have the votes they need to pass the bill anyway. Daines reached an agreement with leadership to raise the amount of pass-through income business owners can deduct.

Multiple media organizations have identified the prankster as 22-year-old Jay Swingler, from the TGFbro YouTube channel.

Firefighters eventually managed to free him after an hour.

It took the firefighters a further hour to take the microwave apart and free him.

"As amusing as this sounds, this young man could quite easily have suffocated or have been seriously injured", added Watch Commander Dakin. "But we had to be extremely careful with the screwdriver, working so closely to his head", Dakin reported.

Dakin added that Swingler could have easily suffocated during this stunt and said, "All of the group involved were very apologetic, but this was clearly a call-out which might have prevented us from helping someone else in genuine, accidental need".

His channel has since shared the video of the stunt-gone-wrong.
